viewers like you. thank you. >> ifill: the regime of syrian president bashar al-assad faced new pressure at home and abroad today. a coalition of opposition groups won recognition as the legitimate representative of the syrian people. and rebel fighters pressed their attacks in and around damascus. across the syrian capital, it was increasingly clear that no one and no place is safe. amateur video showed burned out cars from a blast near the justice ministry. and state television aired footage of emergency workers after three bombs exploded outside the interior ministry. the attacks highlighted an upsurge in rebel assaults around damascus and elsewhere. "the new york times" reported the syrian military is now fighting back with scud missiles, firing at least a half dozen in recent days. against that backdrop, president obama announced tuesday that the u.s. will now formally recognize the syrian opposition movement. >> we've made a decision that the syrian opposition coalition is now inclusive enough, is reflective and representative enough of the syrian population, >> ifill: hours later,
